In this episode of the Hope + Help Podcast, host Christine Chappell interviews Brad Hambrick about his book, Making Sense of Forgiveness: Moving from Hurt Toward Hope. Some of the questions addressed in this interview are: • Why is forgiveness one of the subjects where Christians are most prone to rush one another? • What does—and doesn't—it mean to extend forgiveness to someone? • In what ways might we be tempted to leverage an offense against someone who has asked for our forgiveness? • Is God's forgiveness for us in Christ unconditional? • What are four principals that can help us think wisely about the role that boundaries might play in the context of forgiveness? • What does it mean that trust is a "proportional value" and how might acknowledging this be helpful to us as we seek to move forward in the process of relational reconciliation? • Why do we often struggle with feelings of fear, anger, mistrust, shame, and even intrusive thoughts in the wake of extending initial forgiveness to someone who has wronged us?
